Important Notice

This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

Only a divorce can bring your marriage to a definitive end. You can file for divorce if you and your spouse have been separated for at least one year or if your spouse has committed adultery or spousal abuse.

If you and your spouse can agree on every aspect of your separation, you can prepare a joint application for divorce based on an agreement between you. If you cannot reach an agreement, you will have to retain a lawyer.
